Prominent Las Vegas Shopping Center Decatur 215 Sells for Over $36 Million
LAS VEGAS, NV – The sale of Decatur 215, a 126,678-square-foot shopping center in Las Vegas, was announced by owner Brixton Capital on October 30, who sold the property in a 1031 exchange to a private investor for $36.3 million, with the deal reportedly brokered by Lucescu Realty on behalf of the buyer.
Brixton Capital had previously purchased Decatur 215 from Kimco Realty five years ago for $28.6 million; after acquiring the property, Brixton overhauled and renovated the parking lot, repaving it and restriping the parking spots.
Construction on Decatur 215 was originally finished in 2013, at which time the retail shopping center opened its doors for tenants. It is situated on a 16.2-acre plot of land and is comprised of eight buildings, all of which were fully leased at the time of its sale.
Decatur 215 – located in The Springs neighborhood at the southeast corner of North Decatur Boulevard and West Tropical Parkway – features a wide variety of retail tenants, including such well-known brands as Target, Petco, ULTA Beauty, Hobby Lobby, Blaze Pizza, and many others. The shopping center’s proximity to Route 95 also provides easy and fast access to and from downtown Las Vegas.
The sale of Decatur 215 isn’t Brixton Capital’s only high-profile real estate deal in 2023; earlier this year, the New York-based real estate investment firm also purchased a 143,217-square-foot retail center located in Stockton, California in an off-market transaction that was arranged by Hanley Investment Group.
Despite numerous issues brought about by the nation’s ongoing struggles with inflation and the continued fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, the retail sector in Las Vegas has not only shown signs of resiliency, but of continued growth as well. As per a new report by Marcus and Millichap, the city experienced a 3 percent population growth between 2021 and the first quarter of 2023, resulting in the creation of approximately 50,000 new households. Job growth in retail has also been steady, with the number of employees in the metro area increasing by 3,500 during the first five months of this year.
